  1. Modular Approach to Introduce Multivariate Calculus in Thermodynamics Class (pages 445–449)

    Franklin M. Chen

    Version of Record online: 24 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201500539

    Five manageable multivariate calculus module were developed to help students effectively learn complex relations in Thermodynamics. The goal of this approach is to enhance students’ self-efficacy in learning which is the key predictor in improving students’ academic achievement and retention in science. The author has used this module for four years and students’ learning results are quite positive and encouraging.

  2. Theoretical Characterizations on Charge Transfer Excitations in Solution by Time-Dependent Density Functional Theory A Case Study

    The excited state energy levels of charge transfer excitations in solution may be significantly stabilized by the state-specific polarizable continuum model (SS-PCM) with respect to linear-response PCM (LR-PCM) model.

  3. First-principles Study of Stability of Cu in the Nd-rich and Nd Oxide Phases of Nd-Fe-B Permanent Magnet

    Arkapol Saengdeejing, Ying Chen, Masashi Matsuura and Satoshi Sugimoto

    Version of Record online: 6 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201500393

    In this article, first-principles calculations based on density functional theory coupled with cluster expansion method are performed to investigate the thermodynamic stability of Cu-doped Nd-dhcp and various Nd oxide structures which are important phases to improve coercivity in the Fe-Nd-B permanent magnet system. Formation energy for undoped and Cu-doped Nd-dhcp, NdO-B1, NdO-ZnS, Nd2O3-hP5, and Nd2O3-cl80 structures are calculated.

  4. An Expedient Synthesis of Novel Derivatives of Pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines Using Magnetically Supported ZrO2 Nanocatalyst (pages 410–416)

    An efficient synthesis of pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidine derivatives via one-pot multicomponent reaction using [Fe3O4@ZrO2] as magnetically recyclable nanocatalyst is reported. This protocol funished the desired products in good to excellent yields (70–93 %) and lower reaction times. The catalyst could be easily separated from the final product solution by an external magnet and be reused in 5 consecutive runs without any significant activity decrease.

  5. Fast and Effective Turn-on Paper-based Phosphorescence Biosensor for Detection of Glucose in Serum (pages 424–431)

    Yi-An Chen, Fu-Ju Tsai, Yu-Ting Zeng, Jing-Chang Wang, Chia Ping Hong, Pin-Hsuan Huang, Hsiang-Ling Chuang, Shih-Yao Lin, Chu-Ting Chan, Yu-Chien Ko, Yi-Chieh Chou, Tien-Li Lin, Gene-Hsiang Lee and Mei-Lin Ho

    Version of Record online: 6 MAY 2016 | DOI: 10.1002/jccs.201500488
